A SIMPLE FORMULA TO FOLLOW
Today is Thursday. I enjoyed last night teaching on the Names of God. Jehovah-Tsidkenu (Jehovah our Righteousness) I'm sure glad we have the righteousness of Christ verses our filthy righteousness! I sure enjoy learning the fulness of the names of God. Today I have a truth to share as well:
A SIMPLE FORMULA TO FOLLOW- It will work IF we work it! II Chron. 20:20, says: "Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established, believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper." Believe God and God's men, and you get established and prospered! What a wonderful formula for success in the Christian Life. Let us follow it. To believe in the LORD is to believe in the Word of God. The Word of God is absolute! It will establish the Christian. In the Old Testament, the temple had two pillars outside of it on the front porch. One of the pillars had a name that meant: "He shall Establish". The other one meant: "In it is Strength". God's house is where they met God, and God established and strengthened them. He does the same for us today. He uses His Word, His Church, other Christians, Prayer, etc. to establish and strengthen us! To believe His prophets means to believe God's men. Notice it said "His" prophets. Not just men, but men who God has called, empowered and equip to lead His people.
These are His modern day "prophets". Pastors who love God, love people, and share the Word of God in preaching, teaching, and living it's truths. Believe your pastor. He is not perfect.... far from it, but he is God's man for your life and family. Listen to him. Harken to his preaching. Watch his life and see Christ in him. Learn from him and let your life be blessed as a results. The Bible says: "so shall ye prosper". That is what I want in my life, and I trust that you do too! Blessings on you my friend.
